Marker McGee Honored Again [8:59 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills have tied the NFL record with five returns for touchdowns in a season.'

Marker KR McGee Earns AFC Honors - Again [5:01 PM] reports: 'The touchdown return was McGee's third of the season, putting him in an elite group in NFL history, as just 10 players have returned three-plus kickoffs for touchdowns in a season. The last player to accomplish this feat was Derrick Vaughn of Atlanta in 2000.'

Marker Evans big part of Bills' surge [3:53 PM]
ESPN reports: 'The Bills' second-half success has them at .500 for the first time this season and has suddenly made them a playoff contender, though reaching the postseason at this point remains very unlikely. But if Mularkey and Co. are searching for silver linings, they have certainly found one in the emergence of Evans.'

Marker Surging Bills suddenly have playoff hunger [3:43 PM]
AP reports: 'Buffalo's an easy place to become a cynic. It's where winter lasts five months and the sports teams, as a rule, break your heart, from the Sabres' ''No Goal,'' to the Bills' ''Wide Right'' and ''The Music City Miracle.'' It's very possible this year's Bills will fall short and, perhaps, come up with a new way to lose. But for now, the Bills have a chance, far more than anyone gave them as recently as last month.'

Marker HS Football "Coach of the Year" [1:52 PM] reports: 'Coach Frank Payne of Iroquois Central High School has been named the winner of the eighth annual Buffalo Bills “Coach of the Year” Award for the 2004 season.'

Olean Times Herald reports: 'But after an 0-4 start — How big does that season-opening, last-play 17-16 loss to the Jaguars at “The Ralph” look now? — to still be playing meaningful games in December speaks eloquently of the Bills’ turnaround.'

Marker Bledsoe experiencing a career revival [8:55 AM]
Tonawanda News reports: 'But all this could leave the Bills with a quandary for next season. What do they do with J.P. Losman?'

Tonawanda News reports: 'With Sunday’s victory, the Bills won two straight road games for the first time since Oct. 13 and 20, 2002, when they defeated Houston and Miami. Buffalo last won three straight road games was back in 1993, the season of their last Super Bowl appearance.'

Marker Mularkey focuses on games, not playoffs [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We still have work to do," Mularkey said. "We're not quite at that point we've been talking about since March. We're still going to keep preaching the same things. Hopefully, we keep getting better and better as this thing goes on. We're going to focus on the Cleveland Browns and . . . the Cleveland Browns."'

Marker Spikes feels a special run in progress [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"This isn't the first time I've smelled the playoffs," Spikes said. "But I tell you what, this is the first time I've experienced it this late in the season - where I've actually had something vital to play for. This is the first time it's been like that. I think we've got something really good going right now."'

Marker Clements just may be guy for Irish [6:35 AM]

Marker Can the Bills really make the playoffs? [5:04 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'I still think the dreamers are going to have their hearts broken when it's all said and done, but for the first time since before opening day, I now think they do have a chance — still a small chance — to make it to the postseason.'

Marker Bills Battle Back After Bleak Beginning [5:03 AM]
New York Times reports: 'Bledsoe has quieted the critics for now. "He's taken more heat than anybody," linebacker Takeo Spikes told The Buffalo News after Sunday's victory. "So I think it shows his character as a person. He's fought through it."'

Marker Bills never out even when they're down [5:02 AM]
Los Angeles Daily News reports: '"There's a level of appreciation here," said former Bills special teams ace Steve Tasker, now a CBS analyst who lives in Buffalo. "The people who fill the stadium aren't corporate types; they're the ones who appreciate that when you pick up a paycheck you've earn it. They appreciate guys who in the face of adversity and long odds continue to show up and do their jobs."'

Marker Inside slant [5:01 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'But make no mistake about it, Terrence McGee is turning into one of the great finds in Bills history.'

Marker December Cheers Instead of Jeers [4:58 AM]
WIVB-TV reports: 'Regardless of what happens the rest of the way the Bills have shown incredible improvement. Much has been made of Willis McGahee’s emergence, but rookie Lee Evans growth has been equally spectacular. His second touchdown catch on Sunday showed breakaway speed only a few receivers in football have. Evans could be a special player for a long time.'

Marker At a glance: The Bills [4:57 AM] reports: 'The Bills have won two straight on the road and are suddenly back in the playoff hunt. With games at Cincinnati and at San Francisco on tap, they can’t afford a letdown this week as they need to finish 9-7 to have even an outside shot of making the playoffs. They close the regular season at home against Pittsburgh on Jan. 2.'

Marker Drew delivers, Bills back in contention [9:38 PM]
Niagara Falls Reporter reports: 'Forget all that for a moment, though. Bledsoe still capitalized on all those circumstances, demonstrating that he can still make every throw required of a starting quarterback in the National Football League. And that, despite more than half a season's worth of evidence to the contrary, he might just be able to continue doing so for the foreseeable future.'

Marker Clements Interested In Notre Dame? [9:16 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'It's believed Clements is a long shot because the Irish want an experienced coach.'

Marker Surging Bills edge into playoff contention [9:16 PM]
AP reports: '''We're living day by day around here, week by week,'' linebacker Takeo Spikes said. ''If we can just focus on going 1-0 instead of worrying about going 4-5 or 6-0, everything else will take care of itself.'''

Marker Ask Him Yourself: Mike Mularkey [5:33 PM] reports: 'How do you keep your players focused on one game at a time, rather than scoreboard watching and looking at all the playoff scenarios? MM: You've got to stress in meetings that we have no control over what happens outside of our environment and the only thing that we can control is our game on Sunday. We've got to do our part and let everybody else do theirs. Hopefully it works out.'

Marker Ask Him Yourself: Tom Donahoe [5:33 PM] reports: 'With Drew Bledsoe finally starting to look like the Drew Bledsoe of two years ago and the team winning, is what the Jets did with Pennington/Testaverde…drafting a young QB and letting him watch and learn for a full two years while the veteran played…a direction the Bills could be considering come 2005? Would the organization consider letting a No. 1 pick not play until 2006 if Bledsoe continues to impress?

Marker RT Williams, TE Campbell among banged-up Bills [5:17 PM]
AP reports: 'Without going into detail, coach Mike Mularkey said Monday that both were having further tests on right knee injuries sustained in Buffalo's 42-32 win at Miami on Sunday. Mularkey added that backup tight end Tim Euhus was also to have tests after hurting his knee on Sunday.'

Marker Game Notes: Bills vs. Dolphins [4:45 PM] reports: 'Terrence McGee: His 104-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to open the game was the longest in Bills history…became the first player (team and opponent) in Bills history to return the opening kickoff for a touchdown, and became only the tenth player in NFL history to return three-plus kickoffs in a season and the first since 2000.'

Marker Bledsoe, Bills keep playoff hopes alive [2:26 PM]
The Sports Network reports: '"Turnovers are something we've put a big emphasis on," said Spikes. "If you look at the stats (Miami had a 403-362 edge in total yardage) you would have thought the outcome of the game would have been different. But the turnovers were the biggest deal."'
